Sensual Rope Temple
Time & Location
About the Event
After the first 2 Rope temples sold out we've added 1 last workshop (a slightly shorter one!) Before I head off to Bali.
The Sensual Rope Temple is a shibari/kinbaku intensive workshop which focuses on intimacy, connection, ritual, sensuality and play while working with the versatile medium of shibari rope.
The workshop is great for various levels, whether you’re a beginner or someone with some experience who is seeking to deepen their practice and add intimacy and soul to what they are communicating. We focus on simple and effective rope techniques as well as communication tools, bodywork and energy so that you can create a safe and intimate experience for your partner without the need for years of study and complicated ties. A lot of classes focus on just the rope techniques and people leave without really knowing how to take the skill into their bedroom, this workshop aims to give even beginners the confidence to guide their lovers and friends through a really beautiful, blissful, sensual experience they won’t soon forget.
Shibari is a martial art turned bodywork practice/creative connecting outlet from Japan. Originally used for capturing prisoners, this artform has morphed over the years to be an amazing tool for partner communication and creative expression. From the unique art of decorative knotwork and designs to the intimate connection created when we create a space for surrender, there are so many ways to use rope.
Many of us struggle to surrender in our life, and using this practice with a strong foundation of safety, trust and consent, we can experience a unique type of letting go which has powerful effects on the psyche. Often after a rope class people will share that they feel very much in their body, connected, trusting, blissful and at peace.
With solid safety and communication tools taught in the workshop, you will feel safe to communicate your wants and desires so that you can have the experience you desire!
We use Cacao before the rope ritual in the evening as cacao is a heart opening, energizing plant medicine. Cacao has been used with sensuality, romance and love connections for thousands of years and it is a beautiful addition to rope play. We use ceremonial cacao from Bali.
Workshop day plan
Safety, consent, empowered submission, devotional domination
Intuitive tying techniques, moving the body and rope sensation play
7pm- Cacao ceremony and connecting
Sensual Rope ritual - a guided rope experience. Each person gets a chance to be the one to tie and be tied.
Finish at 9pm
You can come to the workshop with someone you know or you can be paired up with someone in class, you never have to work with anyone you don't feel comfortable with.
We work with a 'switch' dynamic which means that both people in a pair will be encouraged to both tie and be tied. It can be interesting and enlightening to switch from our usual 'roles' and experiment both sides of giving and receiving and it teaches us a lot about how it feels to be on the other side, however if a pair wish to only have 1 person tie then you can have extra time to practice when the rest of the class switch.
Please wear comfortable yoga clothing, it is ok to be tied in your underwear if you prefer. No nudity in the class.
Free water, tea and coffee. Vegan/GF snacks provided.
What to bring-
Sarongs/blankets recommended to bring for laying on and aftercare..
Any ropes of your own that you have or play toys for sensation play (spankers, ticklers, fun bits. We will have some but the more the better! Sound healing tools are also amazing like chimes and singing bowls)
Singles and duos welcome. Queer friendly and inclusive space. Please email me if you have any questions.
